The Shard is one of the finest viewing platforms that can be found in London. In this post, we’re going to be taking a look at what makes this venue so special. From the 72nd floor, visitors can enjoy 360-degree panoramic views of the city. Interestingly, the Shard is the tallest viewing platform in Western Europe. This Winter season, the Shard will be transformed into an “enchanting, sensory winter experience”. The Winter experience will be open to visitors between 10AM and 10PM during the period between the 23rd November 2015 and the 31st January 2016.
This extraordinary engineering achievement represents London’s pioneering spirit, and since its opening in March 2009, it has brought in thousands of people and galvanised London’s central area. The neo-futuristic building divides many people, with some arguing that it’s ruined London’s skyline. When you consider some of the buildings in the city i.e. the Walkie Walkie tower, and the Cheesegrater, we think it’s fair to say that the Shard is one of the better buildings in central London. While London’s skyscrapers will never compare to New York’s, having these kinds of architectural gems helps cement the city as one of the world’s top destinations.
With the Park Grand Paddington Court Hotel , and the various packages the accommodation offers, guests can celebrate their stay in London in style. The Hotel provides its guests with wonderful amenities, including: lavish conference rooms, room service, in house restaurants. Prices for a standard room cost between £79 and £180. A full English breakfast is served daily, and Hyde Park which resides close by, gives visitors the opportunity to enjoy the capital’s nature with ease.
The Shard is also home to the best offices and restaurants in the city. This building complex and has galvanized what the whole sentiment behind what an office building is. Of course, buildings such as the Empire State have already pioneered the idea of hosting offices spaces for some of the biggest firms right within their homes. But in London, the Shard is one of the few buildings that has managed to pull this off elegantly. In conclusion, at 1016ft London boasts the most spectacular views in London. Not having the experience of seeing London from the Shard would be the equivalent of going to New York and not going to the Empire State building. Visit London in 2016, and enjoy all it has to offer.
